Matt 15:23-24

23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
KJV

Before Jesus resurrected from the dead and gave His disciples the commission to take the gospel to the ends of the earth, He only sent them to the lost sheep of Israel (see Mat 10:5-6). Everyone Jesus healed then was of Jewish origin except for very few who had great faith with which they received their miracles. The point here is that Jesus’ anointing was at that time to the people of Israel because he had not yet been glorified.

One of the ways to stay filled with the spirit is to avoid distractions. Distractions for good people are not usually bad things but other good things that are not within their mission for that time. The reason why distractions are so dangerous is because the anointing that God gives you is sufficient for the assignment He has given you and not for distractions.

In order to avoid distractions, you need to constantly walk in the light of your purpose and vision per time, and identify involvements that are not enhancing them.

Go into today determined to stay filled with the spirit and avoid distractions.

PRAYER: Thank God for giving you a vision and a mission in the kingdom. Ask the Lord to help you stay away from all distractions. Amen
